Thanks for the great summary of this wonderful performance. This is absolutely one of my favorite shows of the year, and also one of the first '74 shows I ever got. It seems like almost every song this night is a highlight; the second set jams are some of the finest of the year. But the Scarlet in the first set is The Scarlet as far as I'm concerned. Jerry's fuzz-tone makes this one really unique, and then they just take off into an amazingly fluid and tight jam that does not let up. This is probably the highlight of the first set for me even more than the Playing, which is pretty damn tough to beat.
